Why do I need a flu shot again?

A flu vaccine is needed every season. First, the body’s immune response from vaccination declines over time, so an annual vaccine is needed for optimal protection. Second, because flu viruses are constantly changing, the formulation of the flu vaccine is reviewed each year and updated as needed to keep up with changing flu viruses. For the best protection, everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated annually.

 

It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against influenza virus infection. That’s why it’s better to get vaccinated by the end of October, before the flu season really gets under way.

 

Sign up at the Health Ministry table, call the church office or email Mary, Faith Community Nurse at mary@desertpalmschruch.org so we can let the pharmacy know how much vaccine to bring.
